[ STAFF NOTE ] Our antenna whips are packaged in a slender PVC tube which is manually processed by the post office. The tubes can't be fed into automatic sorting machines because they usually jam the conveyors. Consequently manually processing the tubes typically delays delivery by a few days. We do not ship these antennas by UPS nor FEDEX because these carriers add on a significant fee, per tube, to manually process them.

This is exactly what I needed for my Wolf River Coils mobile antenna… Works perfectly. I was impressed by how the company packages these whips in PVC with end caps. As a matter of fact, I think I will use that same approach, with wider diameter PVC, to pack up my Hamsticks. My only complaint with this process was the incredibly slow shipping. Hence, the four-star rating versus five stars. I did pick the slowest delivery to keep the cost low – but, in my opinion, their fulfillment should've been significantly faster. Irrespective of my concerns about delivery, I believe it is likely that I will do business with this company again in the future. 73 de Robert K3RRR --- [ STAFF NOTE ] Thanks Robert. Unfortunately several things slowed delivery. First was the huge holiday shipping volume that was worsened by the pandemic. Also, these tubes are manually processed in the postal sorting centers as the tubes cannot be fed into the automatic conveyors because they often jam the conveyors. We do not ship them by UPS because UPS adds on a significant fee per tube to process them. We appreciate the update and feedback. Happy New Year! - American Radio Supply Staff
I purchased two of these whips in order to make a 6 meter dipole antenna. I put the two whips on a dipole mount. I was extremely surprised that the SWR on 6 meters (50.125Mhz - SSB) was 1.2!!
The whips were not as thick as I thought they would be and with some effort can be bent. So do be careful. Still they do take some punishment. I purchased a set of Ferrules in which to place the whips and then into the mount. You can't go wrong getting these whips.
Oh, I almost forgot, AmericanRadioSupply.com ships these antennas in a long PVC pipe, which I use to store the antennas when not in use. Great Idea!
Excellent quality and fast shipping.
My second time dealing with American Radio Supply and they hit it out of the park again. Thankyou.
